Head of the Kabul Press Club:
Aziz Ahmad Tassal (20201115) also: Director of Civilian Protection Advocacy Group (CPAG) (20190602)
Kabul Press Club opened 20030422. KPC is one of the strongest organizations working to support and defend the rights of journalists and is officially registered with Ministry of Information and Culture under number 337. The well-equipped club, which aims to be a meeting place and centre of discussion for both foreign and Afghan journalists, was built with help from Reporters Without Borders, the French NGO Aina, which is promoting the country's independent media, and from several press clubs in France, including one in Nantes. The club, near Aina's media centre in the heart of the city, has a newsstand, a cyber-café and other computer facilities. It will be run by a journalists' group, the Afghan Centre for the Promotion of Communication, which will organise press conferences and ensure journalists can express themselves openly and defend press freedom.
